My son is 3 years old, and he just started talking back to me. I tell him to stop jumping on the couch or he will get hurt. He tells me MOM shut up or be quite, don't tell me what to do. I then i grab him firmly and put him in time out for 3mins and tell him why he was in it which would be jumping on the couch and talking back at me. That's not the only time he talks back at me, when i tell him to eat his supper or lunch he says mom be quite and throws his food on the floor. I then put him in time out for 3mins, while he is in time out i clean up his mess. and it does not end there, when i tell him to share with his friend he says my toys, my house, no share. I then block off toys so he or his friend can't get any toys. when we go places i put him and his brother in the cart if i don't put my 3 year old in a cart he takes off on me and thinks it is a game to run and hide from me. but while he is in the cart, he spits at me, or his 6month old brother, he kicks me i take his shoe off so he hurts his foot and not me, he steals his brothers blanket even though he has a toy he brought along.
I try reputation, time outs, toys taken away, no snacks, no reward at the end of the week, early bed time, any advice on disciplining him when he acts out or when he talks back at me
